ACAT officially opens bookings for our first online training sessions

ACAT is delighted to announce that places can now be booked on our first ever online training sessions.

Our popular Being a Treasurer: The Basics will become the first course to be available via webinar from September 12.

Limited places are now available and treasurers are asked to book times and dates convenient for them at the earliest opportunity.

ACAT has split the course – which is equally relevant to new and experienced treasurers – into three two hour-long sessions.

We’re advising treasurers to book all three sessions to ensure that they’re appraised of the entire course.

Each session – costing just £10 – will be led by ACAT’s highly experienced trainer, Manny Kemp.

The first Being a Treasurer: The Basics session will cover charity law and the role of trustees and the bookkeeping and finance processes in a church.

This first session be available on:

Saturday, September 12 – between 10am and 12noon
Saturday, September 12 – between 2pm and 4pm
Tuesday, September 15 – between 6pm and 8pm

The second Being a Treasurer: The Basics session will cover the topics of budgeting, risk and Gift Aid.

Delegates will learn about the planning activities of budgeting and risk management, and Gift Aid and other tax subjects

The second session will be available on:

Saturday, September 19 – between 10am and 12noon
Saturday, September 19 – between 2pm and 4pm
Tuesday, September 22 – between 6pm and 8pm

The third Being a Treasurer: The Basics session will delve into the topic of year-end reporting.

It will cover the year-end reporting and independent examination routines required by law.

This third session will take place on:

Saturday, September 26 – between 10am and 12noon
Saturday, September 26 – between 2pm and 4pm
Tuesday, September 29 – between 6pm and 8pm

ACAT Executive Officer Ashley Ellis said: “We’ve listened to feedback from ACAT members and are now launching our Basics course online for the first time.

“It will enable church treasurers to train in the comfort of their own home or office regardless of where they live in the country.

“Once a booking has been made, a member of ACAT’s team will be in touch with details of how to log-in.”

The training will be provided by Zoom.

If delegates don’t have an existing Zoom account, you will be prompted to download the free software once you’ve clicked on the link that we’ll provide you with.

Ashley adds: “I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Manny Kemp for his outstanding work developing these sessions in conjunction with ACAT’s team.

“We hope to launch even more online courses in the near future.”
